I love when I am just walking through the parking lot, minding my own business but also heckling people about sitting in their running cars and wasting fossil fuels when I almost eat it on the ice. Like, I know the ground is slick but it catches me by surprise every year even when I am wearing my new moon boots that are supposed to prevent me from falling on the ice. Like, why forsake fashion for functionality when it doesn’t matter?! Anyway, I read this tag over on Root Report, I am breaking it up into three parts since it is a bit long – enjoy!
Not that I recall, we generally received clothing so I probably wasn’t interested in what my siblings wore at the time.
I prefer to give, receiving gifts makes me feel weird, there isn’t really anything that I need and I prefer to just treat myself instead.
Nope, I don’t understand the desire to want to make a change but waiting until the new year. Just do it now, tomorrow isn’t promised.
*gasp* No! Unless it’s like an advent calendar or something but otherwise no.
This question is worded weird but I’m assuming it means a homeless shelter or soup kitchen? Here’s the deal, volunteer work is a tough gig to get around the holidays because everyone wants to do it so I don’t often get to work in shelters but I do serve lunch after mass at my church and then we have a list of retirement/assisted living homes that we can visit. Your time is a valuable gift, it is surprising how grateful people are for a few hours of company.
I literally have no idea, my favorite part of Christmas was my stocking. It was always stuffed with little odds and ends and that weird ribbon candy that I love but nobody else seemed to like 😀
My apartment is typically decorated completely right around Thanksgiving, the only thing that changes on Christmas day is the candles that I use since I have some that I reserve specially for Christmas morning. I was just talking about this, some friends of mine always assumed that I waited until Christmas Eve to put a star on my tree since I never had one up when they came over. Last year, they came over on New Years when my tree was still up but still without a star – I just didn’t have one 😀
Both are fake, we can’t have real trees in the apartment building but I did see some needles on the elevator so I suspect that someone is breaking that rule. I don’t mind the fake trees, I leave mine up until my birthday in January and real trees can get pretty dry and scraggly if they are left up that long. I also don’t have to worry about the cats eating the fake tree, I do miss the smell though.
Legit the year that our Christmas tree was stolen! We didn’t have big Christmases growing up and like I said, we received mostly clothing and necessities and we had the same meal every year. I mean, they were just overall pleasant holidays but nothing to rave about 😛 The only thing out of the ordinary that ever happened was the tree being stolen, the angel catching fire and one year I had the flu!
That wraps it up for today’s portion of the tag, I hope you enjoyed it and are finding your festive spirit!
